Thoughtful Leaves

Friday, August 19, 2016
This card was also made using the THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES Stamp Set.  I cased the card from the acting CEO of Stampin' Up!, Sara Douglas, from her live Facebook event.
Isn't this beautiful!
The top layer is watercolor paper.  Simply tape off 3 sides using washi tape (painters tape would work as well) then using your AQUAPAINTER add color.  I used CALYPSO CORAL, DAFFODIL DELIGHT and PEAR PIZZAZZ ink refills.  I did the first layer light, dried it with my HEAT TOOL and the did a second layer making it darker.
I did the same thing on scrap watercolor paper and stamped the leaves from the THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES stamp set using VERSA MARK and CLEAR EMBOSSING POWDER.  Then using a SPONGE DAUBER I rubbed EARLY ESPRESSO INK over it (this is the emboss resist technique) and cut out with the coordinating framelit.  The splatters are made with your CALYPSO CORAL MARKER and flicking it with the cap.  A little LINEN THREAD around the bottom gives it an earthy feel for fall.
Here are the products that I used so that you can click on any image and it will take you to where you can place your order.  BECAUSE... there are only a couple days left to get in on the drawing for the FREE STYLIZED BIRTHDAY Stamp Set.
